ECOPOETICS: Poetry for a better world

Have recent world events caused you to consider our relationship with the planet, the climate and one another? Can we – should we – use poetry to speak to, from or for Nature? What languages does the wild world speak, and can poetry effect positive change? This four-week course will offer you the chance to use poetic forms to articulate what some are describing as a hinge in the history of time.

4 stimulating online workshops
a one-to-one tutorial
contact and support from a community of writers
